Brading town Man of the Match: Luke BODDINGTON.
Brading Town colts section, are pleased to announce, that we now include 2 FA Qualified Goalkeeping coaches, amongst our ranks.
The impressive, Test Park Sports Ground in Southampton, was the venue for the recent FA Goalkeeping Level 1 course.
Over 2 days, Louis Riley and Mark Powell observed and participated in sessions conducted by top class Goalkeeping coaches,who worked with both youth and senior players.
On the 3rd day of the course, Mark and Louis were assessed on their coaching sessions, covering topics from 1-on-1 shot stopping to diving saves.
Both coaches passed the examination, Mark said, “ The course was full of excellent technical detail, that will really help the club to coach our keepers more effectively. The Tutors were fantastic and had worked with England players such as Peter Shilton, Tim Flowers and David Seaman.”
UNDER 14S GAIN NATIONAL SPONSOR.
SAINSBURY’S Newport Store, has made a donation to the Club, which has helped buy a new kit for our Under 14 Team.
Of the donation, Sainsbury’s Isle of Wight Store Manager Paul Dyer said: ‘Our store is at the heart of the local community, it is important that we play our part to support it. When we heard about Brading Town Colts Football Team and their story, we just wanted to help out as much as we could”.
Funded through the Sainsbury’s Community Budget scheme, which was set up to help charitable groups in the local community. It is partially funded by sales of the retailer’s ‘Bag for Life’. So for customers at Sainsbury’s Newport Isle of Wight, this means that they are not only making an environmental choice, they are also contributing to their local community.
After taking some of the squad to Newport for a photoshoot, where they also plugged the new FIFA 15 game, Chairman Mark Powell said “A big ‘thank you’ to Sainsbury’s for their support of the Under 14 team, sponsorship makes a huge difference to our Club.
The Newport Sainsbury’s has followed the Sandown branch in their support of Brading over recent years, showing a real commitment to the local community and sport as a whole”.

Osborne Coburg 0 v 3 BRADING TOWN.
( C Collins 2, D Vale 1 )
Brading earned another 3 points and another clean sheet, their 5th in 6 games, as they overcame a spirited Osborne Coburg.
The scoreline could and should have been more comfortable than it was, in fact Brading were indebted to Ben Self, who produced 3 superb second half saves to keep Coburg out.
Caymen Collins continued his recent good form, opening the scoring from 20 yards, before grabbing his second at the far post, from Dan Vale’s cross. Poor finishing and good goalkeeping, kept the game in the balance, before Vale, who had missed 4 glorious chances earlier in the game, finished well in the last minute to seal the 3 points.
There were many good performances yesterday, Matty Oatley again finding his form of last season. Some of his passes yesterday were superb. The Mulholland brothers dominated the midfield and both broke up attacks and created many good opportunities for the team.
Liam Bennett turned in another eye catching display, improving each game. As already mentioned, Ben Self had superb return to the first team. Andy Payne was away getting married. Ben followed on from where Andy left off, with an assured display and some vital saves.
The game also saw the return of Scott Lawson and Will Quigley, a great boost to the squad. Young Aaron Youngson, stepped up from the reserves and did very well, coming on as a second half substitute.
Man of the Match yesterday was Caymen COLLINS. He is playing as well as i’ve seen him, in my time asmanager of the club. His confidence is sky high and he has now added goals to his game, plus the amount of work he gets through, is phenomenal.
We now have 3 cup games in a row, we will need to keep up the levels we have shown over the last few weeks. The squad is getting stronger, when you consider that Payne, Reeve and Urry were all missing yesterday. The young reserve side have many players that have already played for the first team and there’s a few that soon will.

Some very good news for the Club.
Following a recent, unannounced visit from the Hampshire FA, Brading Town FC passed the inspection with flying colours.
The club received a very high mark, in the high 90’s.
Thanks to all those who provide their time to the club and without whose help, the club would not be able to function.
It would be nice to have more helpers to share the work. Perhaps the one or two people who complain about the slightest thing, but offer no help, might even get involved, with some ideas??
Well done, to all those throughout the club, who are doing a sterling job. Your efforts are invaluable.

An excellent win against the leading side in the division, esp as they fielded several ex Wessex league players. Should be taken as a compliment by this young, inexperienced Brading side.
The young Romans gave it their all in effort and played some nice football against a much more physical side.
Referee: Mr. D. Gregory.
Brading Town Man of the Match: James WOODHOUSE.
